I just don't know why Maserati decided to leave the manual world, most other performance car manufacturers still give you the choice. Not that I am changing cars soon but it leaves me pondering where to go to next??
E90 bmw M3- ok nice engine , but it's a 3 series
Audi S5 or S4/RS4 from previous generation, possibly doesn't tick the exciting box (as a weekend/special day car)
Ferrari 360- starting price Â£80k? Upwards?
Ferrari F430- starting price Â£110k? Upwards?
Ferrari no longer make manual models from this point on
Audi R8- start Â£40k?
Aston vantage - gorgeous looks
TVR - definitely ticks the exciting box
Makes a 4200 in the Â£15-20k range an absolute steal
Also add 3200 (although not NA , but definitely exciting and characterful engine)
Next move - ???? Oh if only they offered the strad with a manual. Only car I would ever need for the rest of my life ! Gorgeous
